    Interesting read on GPU's

    I just came across this article and thought some others might find it interesting about different GPU's tried with AoC.

    Smile Nice read & when I get home im going to play with my use ram for texture setting.

    As you can see, Age of Conan performed considerably better by simply increasing the texture cache slider. In fact, it was just over 18% faster with the texture cache at 309MB than at 0MB. Therefore, if your gaming PC has enough memory to use the texture cache option, we highly suggest you take advantage of that feature.

    18% faster sounds great to me!

    I was thinking the same thing. Would have put more thought and detail into my post but I got busy at work and didn't have time to put a decent reply.

    I'd like to try some of their tips and see what my outcome is.

    We're Basically neighbors Vermantis!!! If you actually live in Bay City, less then 10 miles I'm betting.

    This is awesome, Probie - thanks. I was getting a weird visual bug with green tiling / visual errors on my floors, and it was driving me nuts until this article explained what was causing it. ("From Characters Only" shadow setting does it.)
